Sorting in different path

hello :slight_smile:

I have been searching the forum and the docs for 3 nights.
Unfortunately, I have not yet found the right answer.
Maybe I am blind or just used the wrong keywords.

What do I have to do so that during the import (and afterwards)
files that meet a special requirement are sorted into a different folder.

As a first example:
Tracks that contain energy or # in the comment field
should use a different path for saving.

Or is it better to do this after the import?

my config file
I know that it is not according to the requirements
but this way it be maybe more easier to understand

for info:
beets on docker
i actually use beet only in -S mode
album tags are important but not for sorting into folders

Hi! This is the relevant page in the docs:


    comments:energy: ...

Thank you for your help and your time.

it works :slight_smile:

sometimes i get the output at the beginning:
Skipped 3 paths.

(the numbers vary)

are there supported flags for
log: beets.txt
like -d

About “skipped”, could be: Configuration — beets 1.6.0 documentation

or Configuration — beets 1.6.0 documentation

thank you @jojo I will have a look at it
